Rock the Clock

I am rockin’ the AM train.

Monday-Rest other than a fun walk with Zoey!
Tuesday-Weights AM/5 mi Hill Run PM (got stuck in a downpour—such is life in the NW)
Wednesday-4 mi tempo run AM (two miles at 9:45)
Thursday-Weights & Spin AM
Friday- 5-7 mi Run AM (planned)

Bo-ya! Sorry for the boring re-cap. But I had to share my AM success of the week. I’m lovin’ it and feel like I have tons of energy. I do crash about 8:45 pm but I’m also wide awake at 5!

I’ve been uber busy at work so I haven’t had time to create the race registration for my virtual turkey trot but I will be offering a plethora of distance options, including: a family friendly 1 mile (also an option for this awesome lady who will be 4 days post-IM!!!!!), 5k, 5 mi, 10k, 10 mi and the motherload of calorie burning Half Mary! Assuming the weather isn’t terrible, I’ll be going for the motherload! Look for clickable bibs soon. (RunningLaur, I may need your expert advice on bib design and clickability.) P-town peeps, I’ll be posting a meeting spot and time for our “live” trot (distance to be determined by the individual…I’m hoping maybe I will get to meet CilleyGirl and hang out with Cindy again!). I’ll be printing out a bib for myself (and Mr. Pi—yes hon, you get to wear a handcrafted bib), if anyone else wants a real bib I’m happy to print others.

Thank you to everyone that commented on my 70.3 aspirations. I have been so inspired by so many of you and really appreciate everyone’s willingness to share their training plans, advice, etc. My goal in the next few months is to hit weights and build up a good strength base. Over Thanksgiving and Xmas, I’ll be sorting through all of the wonderful training plans I’ve collected and will develop a plan of attack (the plan definitely needs a catchy name like Kristen’s Project SUCK-IT).

I added a few new pieces of winter essentials into my closet. A headlamp and running tights. If I’m brave enough to take pictures in spandex maybe in my next post I’ll have a picture for you. (I know Mica will be disappointed that this post is pictureless…sorry chica!)

As we start to think about 2010, I found a coupon for a local race already! Anyone wanting to plan in advance, here’s a link to a $5 coupon for Race for the Roses.

Happy Thursday…almost Friday (for some of you, it is your Friday—not fair!)
